 "What drew me to Bishop is how she views the world. She looks at things in a global way - and that's true of personal lives as well as the work," Glasberg said. "She will shed some light on everybody, on who our people are, as well on the way that politics and terrorism and crimes are handled. She possesses an interesting mind, an intellectual, smart way to approach doing what this team does - not with kicks and punches and knocking down doors but by really thinking. She's very much a thinker."
